After the arson-murders, Ben-Uliel and his wife and 1-year-old daughter reportedly moved to Jerusalem and became, so they told friends, followers of Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s Breslov hasidic movement, Shuvu Banim. Berland has been on a more than two-year flight from justice, running from country to country to avoid deportation and extradition to Israel, where he is wanted for questioning in the rapes and sexual abuse of several young female followers, most of whom were married at the time of their alleged assault, and at least one of whom was a minor at the time the alleged sex assault took place.

Amiram Ben-Uliel, the 21-year-old accused arsonist-murderer of a West Bank Palestinian baby and his sleeping parents, was criminally charged earlier today with those murders.
According to a report in Ha’aretz, Ben-Uliel – a well-known presence in the Jewish hilltops and settlements of the West Bank – had until now never been arrested for any violent activities. His father, Rabbi Reuven Ben-Uliel, heads a mainstream IDF prep program for Zionist Orthodox teens, Mechina Nokdim. Amiram Ben-Uliel, his oldest son, was born in the Jewish settlement of Karmei Zur north of Hebron.
Like many of the other Hilltop Youth, Amiram Ben-Uliel came from a stable family and left school due to academic difficulties, finding refuge and purpose on the wild hilltops of the West Bank.
As he spent more time on those lawless anarchist hilltops, Ben-Uliel’s became ever more radical. At the same time, his connection with his family became weak and distant.
He started out in the hilltop outpost of Ramat Migron established by settler leader Daniella Weiss – a hard-right-wing ideologue who for a time headed the Jewish settler movement.
At Ramat Migron, Ben-Uliel met Meir Ettinger, a grandson of assassinated extremist Rabbi Meir Kahane. Kahane founded and headed the outlawed Kach Movement. Many of the Hilltop Youth who are not from backgrounds like Ben-Uliel’s come from Kahanist families.
Ben-Uliel and Ettinger were active in a group loosely linked to extremist Chabad Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburgh that wants to reestablish Jewish presence at the purported tomb of the biblical character Joseph in Shechem/Nablus and in Jericho.
When Ramat Migron was dismantled several years ago, Ben-Uliel moved from settlement and outpost to settlement and outpost – including to the radical settlement of Itamar.
During this time he was arrested in a criminal case and told the court he would not comply with limitations it imposed on him because he did not recognize the legitimacy of the State of Israel itself. Despite this, the Shin Bet did not investigate him.
Two years ago, Ben-Uliel married a well-known Hilltop Youth extremist, Orian Nizri, who glorified the murders of Palestinians and who at one point had at least 10 active criminal indictments against her. She allegedly attacked Palestinians and police and spit on Christian clergy in Jerusalem’s Old City.
Just before the arson-murders of three members of the Dawabsheh family, including 18-month-old Ali, in their Douma (Duma) home, Ben-Uliel lived on a bus in the arguably illegal Adei Ad Jewish settler outpost. Adei Ad sits on a hilltop overlooking Douma.
After the arson-murders, Ben-Uliel and his wife and 1-year-old daughter reportedly moved to Jerusalem and became, so they told friends, followers of Rabbi Eliezer Berland’s Breslov hasidic movement, Shuvu Banim.
Berland has been on a more than two-year flight from justice, running from country to country to avoid deportation and extradition to Israel, where he is wanted for questioning in the rapes and sexual abuse of several young female followers, most of whom were married at the time of their alleged assault, and at least one of whom was a minor at the time the alleged sex assault took place.
Many of Berland's followers are believed to be ex-cons or current criminals.
Ben-Uliel’s wife became a member of the haredi burka cult, also known as the Taliban women, who wrap themselves in layers of dark shawls and hoods in order not to lead men to “sin” by being overcome with their “beauty” – beauty which they believe would be exposed to the world if they dressed like average haredi women with “bulletproof” stockings, frumpy shoes, skirts and blouses, and truly awful wigs with hats.
At the same time, Amiram Ben-Uliel became a Jerusalem kollel (advanced yeshiva for married men) student. On December 1, that was where police found him and arrested him.
This morning, Ben-Uliel’s parents reportedly issued a statement supporting their son. It claimed Amiram Ben-Uliel is innocent and that his confession – which they contend is false – was given only under torture from the Shin Bet.
But that does not explain why Amiram Ben-Uliel was able to correctly reenact the arson-murders for the Shin Bet after he confessed to them.
Amiram’s father Reuven, the IDF Zionist Orthodox preparatory academy’s rabbi-head, is himself a close follower of Rabbi Avichai Rontzki, the former chief rabbi of the IDF. Rontzki, who has been openly supportive of the Shin Bet during the past few weeks of torture allegations agaisnt the security agency made by the Hilltop Youth and their Kahanist attorneys, said today in a statement that Reuven Ben-Uliel “is the salt of the earth, but sometimes rabbis’ sons kick in all directions, acting contrary to their fathers.”
